Thread a needle with pink thread and stitch the pink inner ear cutouts onto the larger ear cutouts. Use a basic stitch to secure the ears.

Step 3

Use a pencil or pen to draw two arches for eyes on the white face cut out, as seen in the photo below.

Thread a needle with black thread and stitch over the lines you made to draw the eyes. Use basic stitches to sew the eyes.

Using the same black thread, you will also stitch the nose cutout to the middle of the face.

Thread your needle with pink thread and stitch the pink cheeks on either side of the face cutout, just underneath the eyes.

Step 4

Using a matching color of thread, stitch the ears on the back of the top side of the orange head cutout.

Using a standard size disposable coffee cup (or whatever mug or glass that you will be using this cup cozy on), wrap the tail around it once. Overlap the top slightly over the tail, keeping the tip of the tail below.

Then place the scarf pattern on top of the overlapping felt (not shown).

Step 8

Place the head pattern on top of the scarf and the overlapped parts of the cup holder base. In the photo below, we hadn’t attached a scarf, but you will use the same placement, just with the head over the scarf.

Stitch the head pattern on top of the felt tail and scarf, being sure to stitch through all of the layers to secure them.

You can stitch the sides of the head to the tail with the same color fabric. Then you may want to switch to a white thread to sew the face to the scarf and tail pieces.

The felt fabric can be stretched a little bit, so you can easily slide this cup holder over a cup or mug that might be just a little bit larger.
